The Holiday Season in Memphis

 | The Parkview Memphis

Our city is bustling with things to do during the holiday season. The abundance of decorations, lights, music, food, and festivities are enough to put anyone in the holiday spirit. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite holiday happenings in Memphis that our residents and their families love.  

The Memphis Zoo: Zoo Lights & Zoo on Ice

Our neighbors at The Memphis Zoo light it up on select evenings until December 30. Visitors are treated to extravagant displays, reindeer, Santa in his workshop, lighted trails, and even hot cocoa! And even though it might not be cold enough for snow, The Memphis Zoo brings out everyone’s inner kid with an outdoor ice rink surrounded by bears, monkeys, and other zoo animals.

Memphis Botanic Garden: Snowy Nights in My Big Backyard

Although Memphis doesn’t typically get a lot of snow, the children’s play area at the Memphis Botanic Gardens is transformed into a winter wonderland that awes even a grinch. Guests get to enjoy a falling snow, carolers, lights, a musical light show, crafts, treats, and more! We can’t forget to mention the GIANT snow globe that kids can play in and a GIANT Light Bright display.  

Shelby Farms Park: Starry Nights

Now through December 29, visitors get to experience an amazing, holiday-themed, drive-through tour of lighted displays through Shelby Farms Park. Starry Nights features more than 1.5 million lights arranged in shapes that range from holiday-inspired to celestial – there’s even a fun tribute to the park’s herd of buffalo. If driving through in your car isn’t the route for you, you can tour the show on a horse-drawn carriage or hayride. There’s also Mistletoe Village, which features hot cocoa, Santa, camel rides, and a petting zoo.  

Other Holiday Experiences

There’s so many options for getting into the holiday spirit, it’s hard to narrow it down. Once you’ve checked out the activities we suggested above, don’t forget to find your way to the iconic Christmas at Graceland, the Enchanted Forest of Trees at the Pink Palace Museum, and Christmas at the Peabody Hotel.
